HCS raising funds with coupon book

Huntington Catholic School is joining other Catholic schools in the area in the annual You Can Lend a Hand coupon book fund-raiser.

Now through Feb. 28, the schools are selling booklets containing coupons for free items and discounts at Burger King and Chili's restaurants, Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Fort Wayne Komets and the ice rinks at Lutheran Health SportsCenter.

The program has raised more than $9.3 million for Catholic schools in Indiana and southwest Michigan since its launch in 1982. Proceeds have been used to fund improvements to classroom and playground equipment, computer software, tuition assistance, library books and capital improvements.
